Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au hopes it doesn’t have to pay out on the beer running dry ($101), or a pie shortage ($34), but anything is possible it seems.
- $101 for ANZ Stadium to run out of beer at NRL Grand Final
- $81 for winning captain to drop the premiership trophy
The bookie is offering $2.50 for the Mexican Wave to get going at some stage, and $3.50 for a beer snake to make an appearance.
Speaking of Mexicans, the Storm are a much shorter $1.28 to win the game itself, but three times as many individual bets have been placed on North Queensland at $3.85.
Cam Smith is an extremely short $2.75 to add a Clive Churchill Medal to his Dally M Medal.
“Treat this as a warning ANZ Stadium! Please order enough beer and pies to service the fans or we’ll have to make some rather large payouts,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
